Dean Goforth determined to drive in Houston
(2-13-2012) Holdenville, OK - Dean Goforth wants everyone to know how grateful he is for all the thoughts, prayers, phone calls and well wishes he has received since his health scare began in early December.
"I want to make sure everyone knows how much it means to me that I have had so many people concerned for my well being, itís staggering all the people that have inquired about my health the past few months. I want everyone to know that I am on my way back to being healthy, but it has certainly been a long process." Dean said "I am still receiving a IV everyday and shots of morphine, and I have not been able to maintain my regular schedule but I have been lucky to have good people around me that are capable of running my business, I have been going to the shop every day and I am able to get in and out of my Extreme Pro Stock car, itís like physical therapy pushing the clutch in and getting in and out, and if the lord is willing to let me I am planning to drive this car in Houston at the end of March during the first ADRL event," Dean said.
"The doctors have told me that if I had not been in such good shape physically for my age that this infection would have killed me. For me that's a good feeling that I have been doing the right things. It really tells me that the good Lord knows what he is doing. I have lost some weight and people who I have known my whole life didn't recognize me, but that's probably not a bad thing. I will be happy to be free of all the drugs and IV and am looking forward to getting back to normal, running my business and getting back in the race car." Dean said.
If there is one thing we know about Dean Goforth it is that you can bet that he will be in Houston proud to be there with his team, and that he wants to shake a lot of hands give a lot of hugs and thank everyone for all the well wishes.
